WASHINGTON -- When Bill Clinton told the staff of his global charity he would have to step down if Hillary Clinton won the White House, he was vividly clear about how that felt: Worse than a root canal, he said. But the Clinton Foundation is also the focus of election-year scrutiny -- pushed along by Donald Trump -- about the Democratic power couple's ability and willingness to separate the organization's wealthy contributors from past and possible future government roles.
The Clinton family is being pressed by some party officials and donors to sever all ties to the Clinton Foundation should Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton win the presidential election. William Galston, a donor who worked in the Bill Clinton White House and is now a scholar at the Brookings Institution, said the "most prudent course would be to begin her presidency with a clear line of separation between the Clinton family and the foundation. This would not be an easy decision, but in my judgment it would be best for her administration and for the country."
Former Senator Russ Feingold has largely been able to avoid such questions about the scandals plaguing Hillary Clinton; or has avoided answering questions about them directly until they most politically expedient for him. Without missing a beat, Feingold had an answer ready to go : Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold called Hillary Clinton "reliable and trustworthy" Monday but reaffirmed his stance that if she's elected president she should consider shutting down the Clinton Foundation.
STATELINE, Nev. -- A visit from President Bill Clinton in 1997 is credited with pushing Lake Tahoe onto the national stage .

In consideration of President Obama appointing Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, in December 2008, CEO Bruce Lindsey signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" with the U.S. government with regard to the operations of the foundation. The most damning crime committed by Hillary Clinton is her violation of Article 1 Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution, which states: "and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince or foreign state."
The charitable group established by former President Bill Clinton should immediately ban contributions from foreign and corporate entities, the NYT editorial board wrote today Trump last week called for the foundation to shut down; he and other Republicans have characterized the charity as a "pay-to-play" scheme that allowed rich donors and foreign governments to influence Clinton when she was secretary of state from 2009-2013 "'Pay-to-play' charges by Donald Trump have not been proved," NYT editors wrote.
Bill proved Donald Trump correct with telling statements he made about Syrian refugees and jobs. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it's a pretty good deal. In other words, now that Detroit may finally be seeing a turnaround after decades of oppression and self-induced destruction under Democrat rule, Clinton sees lots of jobs -- for Syrian refugees.
WASHINGTON -- When Bill Clinton left the White House, he was popular but tainted by scandal, struggling to find his footing. He's promised to step down from the board if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November, a commitment made amid swirling questions -- pushed along by Donald Trump -- about her ability to separate herself from the foundation's wealthy contributors at home and abroad.
The Los Angeles Times, which did a deep dive on Chagoury in its August 30, 2016 edition, said that Chagoury's visa troubles likely stem from his support of a Christian Lebanese politician. Chagoury was 'known to have funded' Aoun, the Times reported, with a Lebanese government minister telling U.S. Ambassador Jeffrey D. Feltman in 2007 to 'deliver to Chagoury a strong message about the possibility of financial sanctions and travel bans against those who undermine Lebanon's legitimate institutions.'

A Bill Clinton interview is out (from February) showing how Bill and Hillary would turn their backs on Unemployed American Workers in favor of Unvetted "Syrian" refugees: Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses--10,000. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it's a pretty good deal.
